Family Information Directory

The Family Information Director is a fantastic resource for both parents and professionals.  You can easily search for childcare providers, children's activities, local events and family days out.  There's also details of various support groups for parents and support and services for children with special educational needs and disabilities.  Searches can be filtered by various categories, including type of service or activity, location, child's age and more.

Childcare funding (focus on TFC)

Our website gives a clear overview of funding schemes available for parents to help them with the costs of childcare.  Tax-free Childcare can be useful for working parents with school aged children, as it can be used to pay childcare costs for 0 to 15 year olds.  The scheme can be used to help pay for a range of childcare options, including holiday, after-school and breakfast clubs.
